  • Our status


  • Description

    We are a Lithuanian (Marija) / Dutch (Danny) couple who recently left our corporate jobs in Europe to travel the world for a few years. We have been together for 4 years and we lived in Cape Town (South Africa) , Vilnius (Lithuania) and Malta.
    Marija has worked in South Africa for a NGO (GreenPop) focussing on planting trees in urban areas and educating people in the townships of South Africa on the importance of greenery. She has lived in Barcelona, Lisbon, Amsterdam and spent a summer volunteering in Oregon, USA.
    Danny has been a workaway-er for three years in South America, mainly as a hotel manager in a small fishing village in Ecuador of a 10-room bed and breakfast with 10 cats and 5 dogs as guest whole year round. Bookings, administration, gardening and maintenance was part of the daily routine.
    Next to this he would house sit for expats, taking care of the property and their four-legged friend.
    Together we have an extensive traveling experience, with currently over 125 countries, with an aim to visit them all.
